Is my Delaware really a Delaware?

I read some place that Delawares have a single comb. Well...mine has a pea comb. Is she still a Delaware?

Or does she have a single comb but it's just really small?

That's a single comb, not a pea. Yes, I'd say she's a Delaware. This is a pea comb for comparison. Pullets rarely get huge combs till they are about to lay. Are you sure yours is 23 weeks old? Seems pretty young.

Would you pm when you have eggs? I'd love to hatch some, and I have some good broodies to slip em under. . .

I'm not fast enough to get in on the BST free-for-all, but I'd dearly love to try some of your Delawares.

Tx!
